Acceptance Speech – Best Score: Lin-Manuel Miranda (2016)


What keeps multiple generations coming to broadway? Could it be the new and exciting voices that give musical expression to universal thoughts and ideas? Among this season’s nominated composers are, in EGOD order, Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony winners from multiple generations Three of the nominees have never previously written for musical theatre But all six have come up with ideas that are inventive and, some might say revolutionary. The nominees for best original score are Bright Star, music by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell lyrics by Edie Brickell Hamilton, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda School of Rock the Musical, music by Andrew Lloyd Webber lyrics by Glenn Slater and Waitress, music and lyrics by Sara Bareilles and the Tony goes to Hamilton, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda! This marks the second Tony for Original Score for composer and lyricist Lin-Manuel Miranda He won the award in 2008 for In the Heights um I’m not free styling, I’m too old. I wrote you a sonnet instead My wife’s the reason anything gets done She nudges me towards promise by degrees. She is a perfect symphony of one, our son is her most beautiful reprise We chase the melodies that seem to find us until their finished songs and start to play When senseless acts of tragedy remind us that nothing here is promised. Not one day. The show is proof that history remembers. We live through times when hate and fear seem stronger We rise and fall and light from dying embers remembrances that hope and love last longer. And love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love cannot be killed or swept aside, I sing Vanessa’s symphony, Eliza tells her story, now fill the world with music, love and pride – and thank you so much for this.
